A rather bizarre, April Fools version of TMI Tuesday.
1. How are your March Madness picks doing? or What is your favorite event?
My March Madness picks? You're kidding, right?
My favorite event? Dinner. If you've never had a meal that is an event, you've never lived in the South.
2. What is the best April Fool's joke - EVER?
Ever? Well, I don't know about "ever," but the year that Taco Bell claimed to have purchased The Liberty Bell and renamed it "The Taco Liberty Bell" - - that one I actually fell for and then laughed my ass off at the brilliance of the joke.
3. Valentine's Day - bogus holiday or romantic holiday?
Although, I don't like to be told when to be romantic - - I like being told when and how to do certain things on certain men, but "romance" is usually not high on the docket on those particular evenings - - I will say that Valentine's Day has the potential to be a romantic holiday.
However, Chicago's October version of Valentine's Day called "Sweetest Day" - - Do any other cities celebrate Sweetest Day? - - is an EXTREMELY bogus holiday and anyone wishing to celebrate Sweetest Day with me can sit and spin. And I don't mean that in the fun way, either.
4. If you made any New Year's Resolutions have you broken them yet? or What have you done lately to make yourself a better person?
I joined a gym. Isn't that enough? Do I actually have to GO?!?
Oh, I do? Fuck.
5. If you believe in 'regret', what is your biggest regret? If you don't believe in 'regret', what do you call 'errors in judgment' or 'missed opportunities' in your philosophy of life?
I don't "believe" in regret, but there are things in my life that I do regret.
I regret that I let my first boyfriend here in Chicago slip through my fingers. I regret that, to be in a city that I love and that allows me to pursue my art, I have to be hundreds of miles away from my family. I regret that I don't have more time to spend with family and friends.
But in life, there are no mistakes. I believe there are reasons for everything. Even if we can't see the reasons until much later in life. Everything happens for a reason.
Bonus (as in optional): Tell us about four things about yourself, one of which isn't true.
Oh, THIS should be fun.
1) I've tricked with a major theatre critic for the Chicago Sun-Times and got some great reviews out of it (among other things).
2) I was an extra in and can be seen very briefly in the Chicago-based film While You Were Sleeping.
3) I'm allergic to aspirin because I ate children's chewable aspirin like candy when I was a child.
4) I have a pair of Jinx Titanic's sweaty underwear in my closet.
Which do you think is false?
